Barbecue Chicken Calzones Recipe:
6 slices bacon
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
3 cups shredded, cooked chicken
1 bottle barbecue sauce
1 can refrigerated biscuits
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped, fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, blot with paper towels and crumble. Add onion and shredded chicken to a pan with olive oil. Saute over medium heat until onion is tender. Stir in 1/2 cup barbecue sauce and remove from heat. Mix in crumbled bacon.
Flatten out biscuit dough on a greased cookie sheet. Spread a teaspoon of barbecue sauce on each biscuit. Divide the chicken mixture between the biscuits, spreading on only half of each biscuit and keeping 1/2 inch away from the edge. Sprinkle cheese and cilantro over top of each biscuit. Fold biscuits in half and press the edges together with a fork to seal. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with additional barbecue sauce for dipping.
